Thomas is feeling better on his second antibiotic and is not nearly as crabby as he had been. I don't know about you, but whenever I take a kid to the doctor's office, I am paranoid that they will pick up another new virus and/or bacteria that will cause me to head back with a new list of complaints in just a few days.
I have proven this point yet again. Thomas went to the doctors on Mother's Day and then again last Wednesday. Yesterday I woke up all stuffy, but the OTC meds made me feel better. Today is a different story. I am stuffed up, with an earache and sore throat. I know I picked this gem up at the pediatricians office. I KNOW IT!
I'll tough it out for another few days before deciding if it is something more than a virus and needs medication. Until then, I'll keep plugging along and doing all the necessary aspects of life to include, school, laundry, animal care...which is not much different from taking care of the ankel-biters...and cooking. Timing of illnesses always suck. I leave in two weeks as a chaperone on Madison's faith adventure trip with her youth group from church as we head to Seattle. Wonderful. Just what I need. An entire 24 hours each way on Amtrak with 70 teenagers. God help me now!
And just for fun, the kids and I were at church all day yesterday (9-3) to help with yet another damn funeral. Enough already. When I know the funeral directors by name, it's a for sure sign that I've been partaking of this funeral stuff way too much of late. But the good news is.....the ground is defrosted and the plantings...ahem...the burials are now taking place immediately after the funeral service! YAHOO
